A Sherlock Carol

A Sherlock Carol
14 December 2023
Marylebone Theatre
5.0 out of 5.0 stars

After having massively enjoyed this fantastic crossover last year, I knew I had to see it again this year! Not only was it the same production, the cast also remained the same from last year, which was great to see!

A Sherlock Carol is, as the title suggests, a crossover between A Christmas Carol, and Sherlock Holmes. A murder mystery that is also a heart warming Christmas story.

Three years after Moriarty’s death at the Reichenbach Falls, Holmes is haunted by the unseen spirit of his nemesis, listless and disillusioned, even driving his close friend Doctor Watson away. But when Tim Cratchit pleads for him to solve the closed-room-mystery death of his good friend Ebeneezer Scrooge, he is re-awakened through his encounter with spirits challenging Holmes’ mindset.

Set at Christmas and expertly blending the two worlds into a touching, riveting story that keeps you guessing, A Sherlock Carol is a fantastic expansion of the Christmas Carol universe and a solid favourite of mine. I hope it comes back again every year!
